Seems pretty reasonable.

So he's adding a $6k super charger kit and charging $10k for it. Lots of dealers do it but that dealer pays for magazines to promote himself. Nothing special

Same dealer offers 800hp mustangs for the same price with full warranty. Supercharged (3 choices) or twin turbo (Hellion). Tunes are quite conservative. The power vehicles are handling nowadays is impressive to say the least. Countless cars making 900+ to the tire with stock longblock and trans (auto).

Actually the factory powertrain warranty is kaput, the dealer warranty's it through an aftermarket company.

That makes more sense, aint no way some dealer grease monkey is gonna slap a supercharger on a stock truck, triple the power and then Ford stand behind the powertrain warranty as if it were bone stock. They don't do that with the experts like Shelby, etc.... no way would I expect them to stand behind every dealer modding vehicles through a parts catalog and a couple of eager techs with a new set of wrenches!

It's a 2 wheel drive regular cab XL truck, and it's better than a Raptor? More HP yes, but not a real comparison. A Crew cab 4X4 Lariat with the super charger would cost as much or more than a Raptor.

In the late 80's and early 90's we were one of the top Saleen dealer in the country, I bet we added over 100 Paxton Super chargers to Mustangs and had very few issues. BUT, I had a couple of top techs that knew exactly how to install and set them up. We basically had a small speed shop as part of our service department, the lead guy eventually left and opened his own shop and has done well for himself. Done right the super chargers aren't a huge risk, but they do void factory and extended warranty coverage unless it's specifically covers "modified" vehicles.

700+ HP in a 2 wheel drive truck? Good luck getting it to hook. Something is going to blow in the drivetrain and if it blows when you're making that 700 HP, it has the makings to be VERY ugly.

Why not buy a sports car if speed is your thing?

i dont think 2w vs 4w is going to make a difference. pretty sure all the drag cars are just 2w.

I'm with you.

Absolutely no chance you can drive and use the power provided without ripping apart the entire underside of the truck and the tranny. No chance.

Rearend, driveline, trans, etc. It is all going to get destroyed.

When the flywheel implodes and decides to come apart.....holy shit......you will think the world is coming to an end.

Been there, done that.

Doesn’t this truck share the A10 transmission? Which happens to be the same one in the zl1 Camaro and worked over mustangs. While 750 is a lot there are boys ripping that or more on the stock tranny.
sure anyone can break anything but this isn’t 1990

Hmmm. That's the Ford dealership where my Dad used to buy his cars and trucks. He used to buy Ford 1 ton vans with the 460 cu in V8. Those suckers would tow some serious weight.
